My friend and I did not know what we were signing up for when we reserved a 2 o'Clock tour. The most amazing peek into a family's life here as four generations preserve their life and their positions....as curator Jay Johnson, with humor and due respect shares the lives of his ancestors, you bring their stories away with you and through his antidotes his history belongs to all of us. We will be back....with our husbands.

This museum has something for everyone - it's a showcase/time capsule of the Colehour family's lives going back to the 1860's. Curator Jay Johnson is the great grandson of the original owner and can tell you the story behind every piece of furniture, artifact and family heirloom. You can really tell this is a labor of love for him, maintaining this house!

We toured the Prospect House and were enthralled with the details of the physical evidence that supported the interesting anecdotes from the family member giving the tour. He was very steeped in the background of the house and the people connected with it. We spent several hours painlessly perusing the many items.

Very cool museum. A gem in little Battle Lake. Very informative tour guide. Kept 9 and 7 year old boys interested in all of the war memorabilia. Definitely worth the visit.
